Electrical problem

When I plug something in to the same side as my appliances same wall. Many outlets it causes the Other stuff to just shut off. I need help I’m stumped it’s also an old house 1989it was built. I would like so when I plug a toaster or coffee maker into an outlet my oven and microwave and internet doesn’t shut off

You are putting too much load on one circuit and tripping the circuit breaker or blowing the fuse. Distribute the load over 2 or 3 circuits. By the way, 1989 is certainly not an old house and there is a good chance it uses circuit breakers.
